AFTER last week’s matric results were announced by the Department of Basic Education, many successful matriculants have since Monday queued at tertiary institutions across the country to register.

Harry Gwala District received a 66,83% pass rate, Entsikeni Senior Secondary in Umzimkhulu and Kokstad College in Kokstad received a 100% pass rate.

Fever visited Esayidi Technical Vocational, Education and Training College in Kokstad and saw many prospective students applying to register.

Some students, who wanted to be unnamed, complained about the slow pace of registrations.

“I am not sure whether my application is going to be approved because the registration process is moving very slowly, but if my application here is unsuccessful I will try other institutions,” said a successful 2017 matriculant.

ANC Youth League Harry Gwala regional secretary Qiniso Ntozakhe congratulated Harry Gwala District for the matric results, which that are better than the previous years.

“These matric results show that the rural district of Harry Gwala is taking education serously and teachers, school governing bodies and parents are thanked for their contribution to education,” said Ntozakhe.

He called on matrics that have applied to tertiary institutions to find out about their status so the youth league can help with registration fees if necessary.

He said the league is sending members to tertiary institutions to monitor the registration process.

Economic Freedom Fighters student body called on those who passed matric to go to tertiary institutions to apply and register.

The Harry Gwala District EFF said it will visit Esayidi Tvet College in Umzimkhulu and Kokstad campuses to monitor registration process and assist students this week.

Linda Mbhele from EFF said party members will also monitor the opening of schools next week.
